Brooklyn Back Injury Lawyer

If you injured your back at work, you can recover workers compensation benefits. Contact a Brooklyn back injury attorney for more information.

New York law allows workers compensation benefits to be provided to injured workers, but you may be unsure of whether your back injury qualifies. Many workers think a repetitive stress injury—commonly the cause of back injuries—doesn’t qualify for work comp benefits.

They continue working and just “suck it up,” but this can actually further exacerbate their injuries. Back injuries are covered under New York’s workers comp laws. The trick with filing these claims is proving that your back injury occurred because of your employment.

It’s true—back injury claims are more difficult to prove than other kinds of on-the-job injury claims, but with a Brooklyn back injury lawyer at your side, you have a better chance of proving your claim and getting the benefits you need.

Common Causes of Back Injuries at Work

Whenever your employment causes you an injury of any kind, you should qualify to collect work comp benefits. Your benefits will allow you to pay for medical expenses related to your back injury and should provide cash payments for the wages you’re missing out on while you recover.

What are some of the major causes of back injuries at Brooklyn workplaces? See below for a list:

  • Lifting heavy objects
  • Repeated bending, twisting, reaching, and lifting
  • Vehicle collisions
  • Strains
  • Slip-and-falls
  • Falling from a great height
